Curating Peer-to-Peer lending and Crowdfunding news | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it

Contrary to my friends at http://www.friendsclear.com/, I am not an expert in P2P lending, a market I started to follow as a Forrester Research analyst when Zopa was created in the UK.

 

P2P lending was a buoyant small space. But financial scandals, the resulting economic crisis and a favorable US regulation (the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act) are making crowdfunding and the notion of by-passing traditional lenders more and more popular. If you're interested in this topic I recommend you follow Matthew Paulson and Peter Renton from  http://www.p2plendingnews.com/ and http://www.sociallending.net/.

Why Trump’s evangelical supporters welcome move on Jerusalem

Award-winning news and culture, features breaking news, in-depth reporting and criticism on politics, business, entertainment and technology.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Excerpt:

But in Gardner’s case, there is an unusual — and contentious — twist: He runs an engineering firm that produced a report as part of the process of preparing that regulation, and the agency deemed it so shoddy that it cut ties with Gardner’s company. Now he’s the nominee to head that agency, the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement. (In broad terms, OSMRE — pronounced “oz-muhr” — focuses on mining’s effect on the environment, while the other key regulator, the Mine Safety and Health Administration, focuses on the welfare of miners.)

State and federal officials at the time harshly criticized a draft report produced jointly by Gardner’s firm, ESCI, and other contractors. They blasted it as “nonsensical,” “junk,” “inaccurate and incomplete,” and “a piece of crap.” Some OSMRE staff members went so far as to accuse Gardner of trying to sabotage the regulation his firm was hired to help develop.

I call this bill the GOP Scrooge America Tax Bill. The Christmas the GOP killed Jesus and replaced him with Ayn Rand’s morality of Selfishness. This was achieved hiding behind saving my unborn babies from legal abortions and ensuring women would head to illegal abortion kitchen tables and their bathrooms.

Poll: Percentage of Americans Identifying As Republican Has Dropped Since Trump Won

Poll: Percentage of Americans Identifying As Republican Has Dropped Since Trump Won | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
The biggest dip is among white women, the Gallup survey found.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Why stay with a party that undermines Your personal power, wealth, health, voice, choice and the well being of your family? The underlying morality of the GOP and their embracing & adoration of the morality of Ayn Rand always places the GOP firmly into anti-Christian self first morality which means the GOP leaves those that struggle to struggle more. The first to feel that are women often raising families alone, minority groups, the poor, the sick and their families. The GOP wins votes by falsely claiming abortion is stopped by making it illegal. Abortion was ironically made legal to a large degree to save lives.... The lives that don’t matter to the GOP agenda... it was women getting abortions along with their babies. The clinics that perform abortions legally offer extended services including help with safety staying pregnant, avoiding pregnancy and even assisting with adoption if that is what a women chooses. This is what women stand to loose supporting and party that does not represent them or look after their interest. The only real choice the GOP leaves a woman to avoid pregnancy is to abstain and have nothing to do with a man sexually .... ever. I don’t think that plan will work. The GOP broader agenda undermines family interest like minimum wage, family leave, paid sick or pregnancy leave, medical care for all in the family and education al options, The GOP are proving their loyalty to the wealthy they assume might drop some serious crumbs off their wealthy table or some how have some wish to share their wealth with others������������ while there is absolutely no evidence of that plan and tons of evidence our oligarchst push an agenda that is completely Ky opposite.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Historical! Trump and the GOP makes history around the globe by for the first time making America selfish and less respected now that our self identified “Christian” Right wing has embraced the “self first” morality of Ayn Rand. The Koch and friends twisted version of Ayn’s objectivism/libertarian morality has consumed what was once Republican and now Republican simply does not exist..... them are sort of like the walking dead... luckily the rest of the world is standing up against Ayn’s influences. We need to build our American resistance to this morality as well to gain respect of the world or even self respect. Trump and the GOP have a seriously flawed plan for our society.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Sorry Folks! I guess some women get excited easier than others but butt grabbing and sloppy unwanted kissing just doesn’t rise to the level of assault to me. That falls in my categories of inexperienced want to be lovers, clumsy lovers, or just plain clumsy and uncoordinated, yucky, smack bait or coffee spill “opps I didn’t see you there”... sorry.... and you have to do it to the same person more than once or twice to hit those categories. Franken must be some butt grabber to for a gal to remember that was more than a day or two.I personally think an apology and the embarrassment of the public yuk reaction is punishment enough. Now genitalia grabbing and firing or otherwise harming careers a person’s future or advancing that person’s future will due to sexual denies or acceptance and child seduction is another issue all together. They should be fired. RExtramarital affairs out side of the workplaces also fit in the categories of poor character and questionable leadership.character even if they are not illegal any
